OK, something better, without editing files manually. No EULA violation whatsoever. Select Option Inspector in the Format menu: and change WindowFrame in Window Properties to Generic. Restart Mathematica and the banner has gone. (Actually, all the options for WindowFrame except Normal will remove the banner, but they will also change other aspects of ...

The process for Mathematica 9 is different. Home Edition 9 appears to lock out certain options in the Option Inspector, including the ones required to make this change. It will appear to permit the previous change, but will immediately revert. To make the change for 9, you need to open up the MiscExpressions.tr file (on Mac it's in the Mathematica.app ...

Edit I first suggested an edit of a particular init file here, a method I found here. Both my question and this answer caused quite a fuss about the legitimacy of it. In hindsight I don't think editing init files should be the appropriate way (which does not mean it would be illegal), especially since Mathematica allows you to make the same changes Rob ...

Here is a possible solution which might work for you too. When you use the Home use edition, then I assume you have another Mathematica licence at work or in university. What you can do is, that you download the dmg over a VPN connection with the fast speed of your office/university. After that, you can use scp or an ftp or something similar to transfer it ...
